Portage High School is participating in their first Spanish Exchange Program. September 10th through October 1st, 26 IES Lancia students will be shown around the area by 26 Portage High School Students. Our visitors will be participating in PHS classes of their choice and will also be presenting to some of our elementary classes. The exchange students will also be visiting local attractions such as: Kalahari, The Ducks, Devil's Lake, the capital, UW Campus, and a Milwaukee Brewer game.
Portage students participating in the exchange will be visiting Spain for two weeks in March. We are so excited for the start of this wonderful program and the long lasting relationships that will develop!
